Cop shoots rider in back during traffic stop.
 
I am not sure which forum this should go in but it is something everybody including cops should be aware of.
Video of the shooting.

News story about the final verdict.
http://www.toledoblade.com/article/2...40348/-1/rss10

On the other motorcycle forum that I spend a lot of time on the story was removed because it caused a lot of arguing between cops and citizens. I did not see one cop that said the cop was wrong.
I wish every cop in the country and every private citizen in the country was aware of this case. The cops need to be aware there can be consequences for their rash decisions and private citizens need to be more aware not to do anything that can be misinterpreted

He needs to go away for longer than 11 years from what I know watching the video, this looks like an unprovoked shooting. Christ how much danger was he in, the rider was facing away from him the entire time! :huh

Kind of Ironic that it was your 205th post.

That has to be one of the most disgusting displays of "law enforcement" I have ever seen.

That cop had his weapon drawn and was ready to fire well before the rider moved. The court evidence also shows he didn't follow procedure but went straight for his weapon. He deserves life imprisonment for attempted murder.

The rider, at the very least, deserves to sue the dept into oblivion.

Typical cops - never admit they are wrong.

I'm sure somebody that knows will put it where it should be. Maybe somebody that missed it in fluff( where I spend absolutely no time) will see it and learn something.

Wow.

That cop should have known better. That young man was never doing anything that might be considered suspicious and never tried to turn or something. So Police man....should be punished and badly.

On the other hand I can see that many police man in US are killed in this kind of situation. SO when someone stops you in the night, with sirens be careful...show your open hands at all the times, no sudden movements. This way no one is going to shoot you....hopefully ....

Back again to this cop...yes he should be pronounced guilty..he needed to be more careful. The gun that you carry gives you power and it comes with commitments that you should obey...

To bad for that young man...I feel really sorry for him....

The charges to me don't seem to be appropriate. If I a common citizen were to shoot someone in the back in similar circumstances, I'd expect attempted murder, and a few more. Felonious assault and a weapons charge? Seems kinda light to me. :dunno

From the video it looks like the LEO did not mean to shoot. I think he drew his gun accidentally shot...freaked holstered is gun then re-drew it as he stepped into camera view.

LEO definitely screwed up.

11 years seems in line with the general public to me.

Sucks all around.

That poor young man. :cry

How do you "accidently" draw a weapon, cock it, point it at someone and pull the trigger??? :huh

Very disturbing to watch. A cop that fearful for his life is dangerous to the general public.

Bullshit! Theres no such thing unless you are a complete moron messing around with a bang stick.

This man is supposed to be a trained professional. He knew exactly what he was doing. There is absolutely no excuse for his course of action. Even after he wounded and crippled the poor bloke he failed to render immediate assistance such as...oh I don't know...calling a fucking ambulance because there is a near fatal gunshot wound that needs urgent attention!
